In Downtown Miami, A Drive-In Movie Theater Called Nite Owl Is Now Open On Property Owned By The Estefans

Nite Owl, a drive-in theater, is now open in downtown Miami.

The theater is showing two movies per night, Thursday through Monday.

Movie audio is broadcast to cars using an FM radio signal. Visitors can also order food and drinks to their car online.

Emilio and Gloria Estefan own the property where the theater is located. They had previously prepared plans for a mixed-use project designed by Fernando Romero Enterprise on the site.

The Knight Foundation and the Omni CRA provided funding for the theater. The Knight Foundation contribution was $124,900.

Now everyone knows about niteowl, their drive in tickets are pricy compared to their old goodlet park and downtown Miami indoor locations. Also will Estefan ever build that tower or just pull a Mana.

That’s nothing new when it comes to drive in theaters. That technology is at least fifty years old.

I’d be too distracted by Melo’s hideous parking garage in the corner of my eye to watch a movie.
